The Pavement Recycling and Reclaiming Center (PRRC) is a university center dedicated to the advancement of sustainable pavement materials and practices through research, training and technology transfer.

The Center was established at Cal Poly Pomona in August 2010 with the support of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Asphalt Recycling and Reclaiming Association (ARRA). Under the initial three-year contracts with Caltrans and ARRA, the Center’s activities were focused primarily on asphalt recycling and reclaiming. Starting with the summer of 2013, the PRRC is pursuing research in the broader area of sustainable pavement materials and practices.


Cal Poly Pomona is among the best public universities in the West and is nationally ranked for helping students achieve economic success. Cal Poly Pomona offers an affordable, life-changing education. Less than 30 miles east of Los Angeles, it enjoys the excitement of a diverse metropolitan while retaining the serenity of a foothill community. Our history and geography are unlike any other university in the region. Nowhere else can students ride an Arabian horse, practice on a Steinway piano, bring a new product to market, and build a liquid-fueled rocket.


The Center is located on the beautiful campus of the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona). We have excellent meeting, training and laboratory facilities. Our offices are in Building 9, Room 301, within walking distance of the Visitors Parking lot.
